Can Going to Fiji Save a Life?

On my never ending journey to learn valuable life lessons, this time it led me to the shores of Fiji in the South Pacific. I never really heard of Fiji, outside of the water, much less even know where it was located on the map. Nevertheless, I knew that the information gained on this adventure would benefit me, my family, and the world at large. Because one golden nugget of information shared in the right hands could be life changing. Please bear with me as I share my Fijian
explorations.

First and foremost let me start with the beauty of the Fijian people. One of the enticements of going to Fiji was learning about the land of Fiji in a Tony Robbins book, “Awaken the Giant Within” The way Tony Robbins described the Fijian people, it was something I knew I wanted to experience firsthand. So when he offered one of his programs in Fiji,  I jumped at the opportunity of a lifetime.

The beauty of the Fijian people is that they are in the now. They are not stressing out about yesterday or tomorrow. There’s few iPhones, iPads, electronic devices amongst the Fijian people and the best form of social media is a volleyball game with laughing and chatting. In a matter of fact in restaurants there’s no wifi so that families from abroad can put down their devices and be present for each other. I learned in my travels, there’s a ton of villages and if one child is orphaned, the village takes care of the child or children.
